Cardiac Care at Jennersville Hospital focuses on the functions and disorders of the heart and its connected circulatory system. According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes or other serious complications.
To assist your physician in diagnosing heart related issues, Jennersville Hospital offers the following outpatient services through our cardiology department:
- Stress Testing - is used to screen for heart disease or to follow up on the status of known heart disease. Testing may include treadmill or medication based evaluation, echocardiography, or nuclear imaging to provide information regarding blood flow to the heart muscle.
- Echocardiogram - a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound to make an image of the inside of the heart. The test allows the doctor to see the structures (walls, valves, chambers) of the heart and how they function.
- EKG - a test used to make a graph of the electrical activity generated by the heart.
- Device Monitoring - is accomplished by wearing a small portable device which measures and records a patient's heart activity during normal activity over a period of time, usually a day or several days. This includes holter and event monitoring as well as implantable device management of pacemakers and defibrillators.
- Coumadin Clinic - provides a simple, convenient way to monitor and assist patients taking Coumadin or other types of anticoagulant or blood-thinning medication. Options of in-office finger stick testing, or with outside lab testing are available. Ongoing patient education, monitoring, and support is provided by an RN and is overseen by the physician or nurse practitioner.
